Berbers Take Rightful Place In Algeria
The Berbers were the original inhabitants of Algeria before the seventh century Arab invasion, and number some 13 million in the current population of around 41 million. Over the weekend, the Algerian government has passed a reform package including granting the Berber language official status and re-instating the two-term limit for the presidency. The government says the reforms will strengthen democracy, with measures like an independent electoral commission and recognition of the roles of women and youth in society.
